Weekend Away


I am small and I want to feel small
Dwarfed in my heart by the awe of love
I want to be dwarfed in plain sight
By the awe of tall buildings

White limestone monuments
Grey concrete abstractions
Fiery red-brick towers

With the chaos of a hungry heart in love
Surrounded by tall buildings
There is always something, somewhere
To seek out and explore
New avenues to be lost in
New details to obsess over

Let me give you a halo
You can lead the way
I’ll keep seeking its sparkle
Long after you lose me
